Not sure if this is the correct section or Video cards, but i need some clarification from people that have experience with ROG DCUII cards, specially with fan control on the ASUS GPU TWEAK utility.
Until now i believed ASUS GPU TWEAK was a RivaTunner derived utility like is MSI afterburner or EVGA Precision, ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II
The GTX 670 DirectCU II ships with ASUS' GPU Tweak utility which offers a wide variety of fan, clock, and voltage adjustments as well as monitoring functionality. It bares more than a passive resemblance to MSI's popular Afterburner application, albeit skinned with ASUS' attractive red and black Republic of Gamers motif.ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II OC
The GTX 680 DirectCU II OC ships with ASUS' GPU Tweak utility which offers fan and frequency adjustments as well as monitoring functionality. It looks suspiciously like MSI's popular Afterburner application, though skinned with ASUS' red and black Republic of Gamers scheme.
While reseraching what new card to buy, i was almost sure it was going to be a DCUII with all the good reviews on the past from SPCR, but watching a video where asus was promoting their products, there was a question toward Asus representative that stated that ASUS GPU TWEAK was created by asus and not a rivatunner derived utility. There is also the GPU Overclocking Apps Review with Interview of RivaTuner Creator
Alexey confirmed my suspicions about ASUS GPU Tweak; the software is not based on RivaTuner and is developed by ASUS from the ground up.
On MSI Afterburner i always have had the restriction from where the vBios can let me go down, atm with Galaxy GTX580 its 30%, but i know some that have modified the vBios to get lower, still not that interested on flashing my videocard so im kinda intereseted on something alternative. I have seen restriction on motherboards bios in case fans that cant go below 60%, but with FanXpert2 it can.... so maybe Asus GPU tweak might be similar. While checking a lot of screenshot of GPU Tweak i saw their fan graph,
From the picture it can start at 10%? Just wondering maybe some owners of directCUII GPUs that have some experience on the Asus GPU tweak, if it can allow dropping the fans that low, i dont care if its only for asus gpu, ill buy one if this utiluty will allow me to drop GPU fans lower than what the vbios has as minium.
